. awesome. get the grappling hook to... dad, i... no? ok. >>> if benedict the xvi was hoping for a quiet end to a sometimes turbulent papacy, it is obviously not to be. just four days before the pope's own resignation takes effect, we learned the only catholic cardinal in britain, keith o'brien, seen here, keith o'brien of scotland, has also resigned and won't be taking part in the conclave to choose pope benedict's successor. a british newspaper is saying that three priests and one former priest have accused o'brien of, quote, inappropriate relationships dating back to the 1980s. he denies that, and he was due to step down anyway because of his age. but he was also expected to gather in rome this week, or next, with his fellow cardinals. and if anybody thought the church's scandals would end when a new pope was chosen, that is not to be either. the pope today decided that a top-secret vatican report on the document leak, remember that document leak that was blamed on the pope's butler? well, it's a report that he and only he is supposed to have seen. but it is supposed to be left to his suc
responded to that in a remarkable way. benedict xvi thought it wouldn't play out that way and he was not going to hold the stage simply to hold the stage. he was going to make a humble act of acceptance of what he believes is god's will. >> is he making the decision about when the conclave will start? there are a lot of people who will wait the 15 days. normally it would be a period of mourning, but the pope has not died. >> i find this frankly ratherer puzzling myself. i'm told the decision was made by the dean of the college of cardinals and the guy who runs the church, if you will. it does seem to me to be rather a long time to wait to enclose the conclave. we have already had the three-week period before the pope officially steps down. >> it does seem like there a lot of decisions yet to be made. we were talking about the fact we know the pope is going to go for a short time. then literally straight down the street at the vatican, there's what is essentially a monetary and we're just learning that they have been doing some fix-it-up construction work since this summer. >> i w

in for me on friday when i was snowed in. when pope benedict xvi announced today that he would resign as pope, that he would abdicate the papacy, the move was greeted, frankly, with shock. that is something that has not happened in 600 years is happening right now. but it was also clear immediately that even though nothing like this has happened in 600 years, or 598 years to be exact, the catholic church nevertheless had a plan ready to go. even though no pope has resigned his seat since the year 1415, and this resignation announcement today from pope benedict was totally unexpected, despite all of that, there is apparently an agreed upon protocol for what happens in an instance like this. once pope benedict leaves the vatican on february 28th, the church says he will go live for a while in castle gandolfo, which is the pope's summerout house in a small town outside of rome. he will live at that castle while construction work is done on a cloistered monastery inside the vatican complex. then when the construction is done, he will move back into the vatican. and living in that cloister
